The origins of the Claude Berry store are inspired by my mother, Ms. Raymonde Raimbault, and her childhood and faience (earthenware) memories. Originally from Cernoy-en-Berry in France, while she had pure Berrichonne blood running through her veins, her heart always remained Giennoise. Ms. Raimbault came to America in 1955, and moved to the province of Quebec with her husband Mr. Joseph Zimmermann, a watchmaker.  In 1981, a lifelong dream came true when she opened the Claude Berry store on Côte de la Fabrique street. Since that first day, Claude Berry has been the only retailer in North America that sells the Faience d'Art de Gien earthenware line, including the Pivoine, and the Renaissance.

More than anything else, Ms. Raimbault loved beauty, and that can be felt in every square inch of her store.  My mother was passionate about earthenware and loved sharing her passion for it with others. Sadly, she left us on February 16th, 2008.

In loving memory of my mother, I have had the great honour of pursuing her dream and running the Claude Berry store.  She left me her dream, and her love for faience beauty and table art.
